iTunes Editors’ Notes

With George Martin and Jeff Lynne producing, Flaming Pie is a sympathetic and surprisingly spare piece of Beatle-esque pop from the man who created the sound in the first place. It's filled with gentle acoustics and McCartney’s finest songs in years. Throughout Flaming Pie, the sounds are kept solid and true. The beauty of “Somedays” (with its gentle acoustic guitar, quietly sawing strings, and “Penny Lane”– styled horn) is gripping; it's a song Beatles fans have waited their lives to hear. “Young Boy” features growling guitar and stacked harmonies. The title track drives its point home with pounding piano, crusty electric guitar, and cheery psychedelic lyrics. “Beautiful Night,” with cowriter Ringo Starr on drums, sweeps through with muted strings and keyboards. “Calico Skies” spotlights a sweet, delicate vocal. Blues guitar and soothing harmonies color “Heaven on a Sunday.”

Customer Reviews

One of those albums

I'll go to the grave believing that this one of the absolute best albums I've ever heard. It's a fantastic throwback to the Beatles' songs ("The Song We Were Singing" is based on McCartney and Lennon's relationship) and it's great song after great song. If you love The Beatles, get this album and you will not be disappointed!

Must-Haves:
~The Song We Were Singing
~The World Tonight
~Somedays
~Calico Skies
~Used To Be Bad
~Souvenir
~Little Willow
~Beautiful Night (BEST SONG ON THE ALBUM!!!)
~Great Day

Just buy the album! You'll love it!

AMG Review

According to Paul McCartney, working on the Beatles Anthology project inspired him to record an album that was stripped-back, immediate, and fun, one less studied and produced than most of his recent work. In many ways, Flaming Pie fulfills those goals. A largely acoustic collection of simple songs, Flaming Pie is direct and unassuming, and at its best, it recalls the homely charm of McCartney and Ram. McCartney still has a tendency to wallow in trite sentiment, and his more ambitious numbers, like the string-drenched epic "Beautiful Night" or the silly Beatlesque psychedelia of "Flaming Pie," fall a little flat. But when he works on a small scale, as on the waltzing "The Song We Were Singing," "Calico Skies," "Great Day," and "Little Willow," he's gently affecting, and the moderately rocking pop of "The World Tonight" and "Young Boy" is more ingratiating than the pair of aimless bluesy jams with Steve Miller. Even with the filler, which should be expected on any McCartney album, Flaming Pie is one of his most successful latter-day efforts, mainly because McCartney is at his best when he doesn't try so hard and lets his effortless melodic gifts rise to the surface.

LOVe this album!

it got me through college; when I first went away, the nights were hard being on my own but my sister had her old CD of this in my radio so I played it every night like a lullaby to soothe me and fell fast asleep :)
